so i have this little problem.



whenever i bake cookies...

i single-handedly eat every. last. one. 

i have zero self control.

no switch inside that tells me when to stop.

no guilty conscience.

even the fact that my pants fit a little tighter won't get in my way.

so, the other day i thought of a brilliant solution.

nope. not to simply stop baking cookies...

that would be too easy.

my solution?

put the blasted things in the freezer 
so i won't be tempted every time i open my pantry
and see those freshly baked beauties staring back at me, 
taunting me to just have one more.

so, i put my ingenious plan into action.

after the last batch of cookies had been baked and cooled, 
i lovingly placed them into a ziploc freezer bag and into the vault they went.

there.

that oughta do it.

...

now i have a new little problem.

i really like frozen cookies.

LOL! Been there tried that. Nothing can stop the tastiness of homemade cookies!

You should try Sensa, it helps with cravings and portion control--surprisingly, it worked for me too...

ya, don't even get me started on cookies, I can never pass one up. Pie, cake, pastries-I can turn down, but NEVER a cookie :) (Unless it has raisins in it)

Seriously same reason I never bake cookies...and I too love frozen cookies!

I try not to bake cookies because I have the same problem. I try to only make them if I have people to share them with :)
I haven't tried a frozen cookie before. My husband likes to put his thin mint girl scout cookies in the freezer.

That made me laugh! Cookies are my weakness too. Nice try trying to come up with a solution Ü

This is too funny. I love a good homemade cookie and also have no self control. I find myself making cookies "for my husband". Ha!
